Production. Aircraft. George "Randy" McCraw decorating a Vega Ventura bomber. Every ship that rolls off the line carries a cartoon aimed at the Axis. George came to work as a spray painter, then shifted to painting British insignia on sides of ships. He sometimes amused his fellow workers by drawing faces on ships during lunch hour, and was prevailed upon to put a big drawing on a ship for a special occasion. The idea took, and now George puts a gag drawing on each ship. The paint washes off with gasoline, but overseas gossip says these ships go into combat still bearing assorted Rudy Ostriches, Donald Ducks, Porky Pigs and a host of other cartoon characters
